There are just a few screws to remove it. What happens is the IAC [idle air control] opens and closes to establish the proper idle. Carbon and other deposits build up and make it sticky, so the valve [acts just like a plunger] doesn't operate as smooth as it could. So clean the plunger on the IAC with chemicals that do not eat away the o-rings or other parts of the assembly and do a good job cleaning the port where the IAC resides. A LOT of buildup occurs in there too.

If you did it already, how did it go?
